    Default Help me - Alcohol redness

    After drinking some alcohol, my face became red and I had some hot flushes. The burning sensation on my face was bad. Of course, the worst was the faces of my friends, that didn't understand what was going on.



    - Yes, I'm posting this the second time, because I want more people to see this

    Hi MetcaAllfe - yes, a lot of rosaceans report alcohol as a trigger for flushing and/or a worsening of their condition. What alcohol were you drinking? I suggest experimenting with different types to see if you can find one that your body responds to more positively. For instance, I flush badly from even the smallest amount of red wine (even red wine sauces can set me off sometimes) but I am able to drink beer (lager) and clear alcohol (vodka, gin) with no reaction.

    I call it Beer Heat.....arrives after the 2nd Beer and goes away after the 5th lol

    I know it's no good for my Rosacea, but the relaxation and enjoyment outweighs the initial flush.
